Letting go

SHE LET GO

~By Rev. Safire Rose~

She let go. Without a thought or a word, she let go. She let go of the fear. She let go of the judgments. She let go of the committee of indecision within her. She let go of all the right reasons. Wholly and completely, without hesitation or worry, she let go.

She didn’t ask anyone for advice. She didn’t read a book on how to let go. She didn’t search the scriptures. She just let go. She let go of all the memories that held her back. She let go of all the anxiety that kept her from moving forward. She let go of the planning and all of the calculations about how to do it just right.

She didn’t promise to let go. She didn’t journal about it. She didn’t write the projected date in her Day Timer. She made no public announcement and put no ad in the paper. She didn’t check the weather report or read her daily horoscope. She just let go.

She didn’t analyze whether she should let go. She didn’t call her friends to discuss the matter. She didn’t utter one word. She just let go.

No one was around when it happened. There was no applause or congratulations. No one thanked her or praised her. No one noticed a thing. Like a leaf falling from a tree, she just let go. There was no effort. There was no struggle. It wasn’t good. It wasn’t bad. It was what it was and it is just that.

In the space of letting go, she let it be. A small smile came over her face. A light breeze blew through her. And the sun and the moon shone for evermore.

She let go

All I can say is this 🙂 when we wake up all the rest goes out the window. And we can be free and happy too. This is just beautiful.

I was worried at first about this being a suicide story of someone who hadn’t ‘let go’ in the right way in time to save herself! For some, they become so consumed and too far invested in the belief of the messages that they suffer, that they are worthless, and to disappear altogether is the only way that they can see out! Beautiful though – that’s what I did, eventually, though it took time to learn to shake the haters off! 🙂 x

Vanessa, I feel the same way.. I am not trying to understand it anymore either. He is what he is, I know that, and I look upon the woman he is involved with now as “Poor woman, I wonder when he is going to start the negative treatment on her?”.. if he hasn’t already. I have read all I need to read to satisfy my curiousity and I am moving on.. It did take awhile though.. I must admit.

    Kathy, it took me such a long time with many failed attempts and so much research, over and over again. I’m so happy for you that you are at this stage as I know how much better I feel. I feel stronger and authentic now that I have truly accepted this and moved on from having him in my head constantly. I have a bit more energy to focus on the good stuff I want to experience for myself and to focus on my own healing.

I love this. I feel like finally, this is exactly what I have done. I have blocked all contact with my N. After months of reading about, trying to understand, working out what part was my fault, being scared to really move on. I did it. I am the only one yet who truly knows and believes I have after so many attempts. The difference now is I’m not trying to understand why he is like he is. I just know he is what he is and trusting my gut. My future seems just a little brighter today and I feel so strong for doing it.

    Tanya, thank you so much for sharing. I had a similar experience. I just “woke up” one day and went out and put a deposit on a new apartment. I haven’t looked back since…
